Half Term at Wallops Wood

With February half term just a month away, it’s time to plan your family break and spend quality time with the kids. There’s plenty to do at Wallops Wood that all the family will enjoy and be entertained whatever the weather. From indoor activities such as baking and games to using our beautifully heated indoor pool or enjoying the great outdoors 🌤 ☔️

Baking Experiences

We offer baking experiences for children, (not forgetting grown-ups of course 😉), which include brownie making, ice cream making, pizza and biscuits. Definitely something for a wet afternoon, or just for a bit of fun whatever the weather. You can purchase the baking baskets from our on-site shop. Perhaps have a biscuit decorating competition to see who can come up with the most creative decorations! Either way, everyone will enjoy the end results 🍰🍪

You can find a full list of Children’s Equipment, Toys & Games here, and if you would like to borrow of anything on the list, please let us know. Toys include foam jigsaw mat, walkers and wheelie toys. Some of the games you can use are Articulate, Logo Billionaire and Logo Board Game. 

Unfortunately our Games Room remains closed due to COVID.

Swimming Pool

Our swimming pool is available in time slots for sole use to each cottage. The pool is operated on a pre-booking basis and you can book a time slot the day you arrive. Just go to the pool entrance where there is a rota on the wall just inside the door. The pool is open every day from 9am to 7.45pm.

Having the pool all to yourself means you can relax with your family more than you would sharing it with others. Perhaps your child is at an age when you’re teaching them to swim – what a fantastic way to encourage them and get them started by having your own personal pool for a few days! If you want to use the time to get a bit fitter, relax in the warm jacuzzi and enjoy some time to yourself after swimming a few lengths. The pool is there for your enjoyment and to use how you wish.

Outdoor Activities

If you prefer more outdoor activities, our meadow is a great place to start. There’s plenty of space available for children to play and run around. The cottages adjacent to the meadow all have a gate that leads straight onto it making it easy to make the most of. It also makes a great place for exercising your dog. There’s a picnic bench and some of our guests also enjoy using it as a place to relax in the sun. 

We’ve also got many walks straight from the doorstep. On a dry day it’s a wonderful opportunity to get out, enjoy the fresh air and take in the nature that surrounds us. You can find the local walks here or find them on laminated cards in your cottage.
